One of a Kind Names

I've always loved having a unique name and I wanted to pass that on to my children as well. Surprisingly, there are more Palmers in the world than Leras. I have met a few Leras, but have never even heard of anyone else named Palmer (which is one of the reasons why we like the name, besides of course, being inspired by the most awesome character on television ever, President David Palmer from 24). It's nice to know that Palmer and I are originals! Greg, sadly, is not.

That's neat that you can check out your names and see where you fall in popularity. I'll have to try it out!

Tiffany, Jay, and Lilly are all pretty common. We aren't very unique when it comes to names.
